Great greens, overall fun course
Stunning greens. Fairways very much parkland style and quite dry in places. Some tee boxes not in the best condition.
Matched up with 1 other player who was a good craic.
Great 9 hole course
Course in great condition, especially the greens which were excellent. Interesting layout in Epping Forest. Really need to think carefully when on the tee. This is not a course to just pick out your driver on every hole. Careful placement is vital. Greens are true with Interesting borrows. Will be back.
Played 9 holes, Greens seem to be cut smaller than last visit. With the pace being slower than expected for prime season.
Pace of play was very slow, joined as a 2 ball on 1st tee, caught up another 2 ball on the 3rd tee as was being held up by a 4 ball.
Fairways burnt out which made course play short, still good value for money 9 holes price of a basket at the driving range.
I took the dog!
Great friendly open course that let me bring my own dog!, My dog enjoyed it so much we went round twice. Take mozi/ bug spray as there's quite a few. Overall I had a great round of golf and will definately be going back.
Great value round but lots of public out on the course as it’s an open park. Would recommend and the greens were really good. I’ll be back.
It was good but I couldn’t play the last 9 holes
The course itself was good, quite short but very tight and offers a unique set of challenges. I am couldn’t play the final nine holes as there were too many groups in front of me (you play nine holes twice) so this was poor management by the club. The course was pretty good and had a good time
Woodford Golf Club
Warm welcome on a warm day - by staff and members. Course in really good condition, especially the greens. Remarkable as it’s got walkers, dogs etc as well. Smooth rate of play until the last couple of holes. Everyone very respectful of each other.
All in all a pleasure to play and one of the best 9 holes I’ve been on.
Wasn't expecting much given the cheap price but whole experience was dreadful. First time visitor, no signage to even tell you that you are at the right place. Couldn't tee off due to dog walkers and joggers, like playing in a ploughed field.
Not what was expected
Although I have graded this a 2/5 I genuinely believe they have done best with what the could.
So to clear up what was not expected, this golf course is actually in a park. Like people, dog walkers and cyclists constantly around you, Making it hard to keep rate of play up. To note on this my friend hit one down the fair way and a few dog walkers walked roughly near the area, we couldn’t find the ball anywhere so we’re like 95% sure one of the dogs grabbed it.
The fairways are roughed up because it’s a park, me and my friend decided to pick and place because of the lack of grass. However surprisingly they’ve done a really good job with the greens.
I definitely think it’s overpriced.
Enjoyed the round but had some trouble navigating from tee to tee. I’ll be back. Great little course!
Gets you out
Managed to get the first tee time of the day and had never been here so thought why not?!
Wasn't expecting augusta having read previous reviews and I knew conditions wouldn't help at this time of year. But if fairly local and want a knock then I'd say go for it but don't go out of your way.
Few nice holes but mostly average. Nice friendly staff/Green keeper. Just keep an eye out for dog walkers and joggers!
Nice little woodland course
First time playing there, we didn't know it only had 9 greens but you can play 18 holes as the tee positions are slightly different on some of the holes. Fairways in very good condition and green good too. Tees need a bit of TLC but ok. Slightly off putting with all walkers and joggers around with a few of them clueless when it comes to sharing open space. On the whole most were considerate towards golfers.
OK course, plays like a links course. Huge problem with public walking, having picnics, walking dogs or simply hanging out in the middle of the course. hugely off putting having to constantly stop and shout at people to get off the fairway, not to mention dangerous.
